ephemeral cities

In Spain one can find a linear city all along the coast built for tourism, a section of land that becomes the most crowded region in Europe, but just for a short time. It’s a city for only three months in summer, when thousands of people come looking for the sea and the sun. The rest of the year it becomes a ghost city, a city without any a function, with no people and no services. It has been growing and expanding since the 60's, and it seems it have no end. Sergio Belinchon shot an impressive photographic series that documents the development of this ephemeral coastal city.
